Default TW 4.3 tethering [WIP]

Hello all, I have the 4.3 TW OTA on my phone... regretably. Silly mistake on my end, I do not know why I took the update but I did. Anyhow, like many you who did, the best we can do now is saferoot (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&highlight=s3). This thread is mostly about the hotspot feature. I've tried several methods to bypass red's hotspot service (free the way it was meant to be). All attempts have failed. I'm not really sure what I'm doing anymore but I did something earlier and i was able to disable the the notification for a bit and use the hotspot for roughly 5-10 minutes then it kicked me off again. Has anyone else had any success? What are your methods and what should we be looking into?

EDIT #1:Something interesting to look at.

EDIT #2: There is an app on the market that enables to tether using bluetooth functionality.

Any luck? I'm in the same boat as you, as I'm sure are many others.

DONATE TO ME
Can you look in your system and see if you have a folder named priv app? If so see if there is a apk named VZWentitlement blahh bla bla. If so I may be able to port the exploit I use over.

I suspect there may be setting in systems settings that can be modded using sqlite but i'm not sure which one

Hoping this means the FoxFi devs can get this figured out for us too.

this is very good, does anyone know what this app does differently? In particular it requires a root but that would mean there is something we can bypass ourselves to deal with verizon putting a block on our hotspot. I can't find where they would have hidden such a 'feature.'
Kudos to Medicstud007 for finding this. How do you find apps in relation to their upload date or last update date?

Didn't the FCC rule against Verizon where they couldn't block the use of a mobile device that has a hot spot and tethering function.

This doesn't apply to unlimited data plans, only to tiered data plans.
